BOSTON - Stuck in a four-game losing streak, the Columbus Blue Jackets rested their All-Star goalie and let backup Curtis McElhinney have another shot at the Boston Bruins. Cornelius Lucas III Jersey .McElhinney answered with 34 saves as Columbus ended its own skid and stopped Bostons five-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory over the Bruins on Saturday night.It feels good. Obviously, you want to be the catalyst that comes in and responds to a situation and I felt like I gave the guys an opportunity to win tonight, said McElhinney, who was also in net for the Blue Jackets in a 6-2 rout of the Bruins on Dec. 27 in Columbus.Boston hadnt lost a game in regulation since, going 9-0-3 and winning five straight until stalling Saturday night at home.Matt Calvert scored the go-ahead goal with 3:03 left in the third and added an empty-netter in the final minute as Columbus responded from a 2-1 loss at the New York Rangers the night before by finishing strong in Boston.It was nice to see them get that second one there to put us ahead and, obviously, the third gave us the distance, said McElhinney, who got the start as Sergei Bobrovsky rested in the second night of the back-to-back games.Ryan Johansen had a goal and an assist for the Blue Jackets, extending his point streak to 13 straight games, and Calvert battled through a stomach bug while ending an eight-game stretch without a goal.Despite the illness and a shot to the head in the second period, Columbus coach Todd Richards said Calvert never stopped hustling.Thats what you want to see from the guys that are working, Richards said.McElhinney didnt allow anything past him after Carl Soderbergs goal 11:34 into the first period tied the game at 1.The tie stood as McElhinney and Boston goalie Tuukka Rask exchanged saves through the second and third periods until Calvert broke the stalemate by backhanding in a rebound off a slap shot by Brandon Dubinsky. Dubinsky got the Bruins to bite on a fake and had a full windup for a shot that got through Rasks pads and hovered just outside the goal line before Calvert got his stick on it.Boston pulled Rask for the extra skater and Calvert capitalized with a shot from just inside the centre line with 38 seconds remaining.Rask, who finished with 28 saves, was still fuming over Calverts first goal and stormed straight to the tunnel after the final buzzer. Boston had allowed just six goals during the five-game streak.It was night and day from the past whatever games we played well, Rask said. We started a little slow and then we gained our game in the first period. Then, the second and third we were just back to the old habits.Johansen gave Columbus a 1-0 lead on a power-play goal 7:57 into the first period, extending his franchise-record points streak to 13 straight games.Soderberg tied it 11:34 into the first on a one-timer off a pass from Loui Eriksson.McElhinney buckled down from there and also survived taking a direct hit to the head on a slap shot by Zdeno Chara.It felt good because it didnt go in, McElhinney said. Thats always a start with his shot. Big guy, big shot.NOTES: The Bruins issued a statement from club president Cam Neely on the death of longtime radio broadcaster Bob Williams, who died Thursday at age 85. For a generation of New England hockey fans, Bobs legendary voice was synonymous with the Bruins and he will always be a part of our clubs history, Neely said. ... Boston LW Brad Marchand served the first of a two-game suspension for slew-footing Derick Brassard of the New York Rangers on Thursday. ... Johansens goal in the first period was his 17th of the season. Jack Johnson and Scott Hartnell both picked up assists — also the 17th for both. ... Boston was trying for its first six-game winning streak of the season. ... McElhinney started for All-Star Sergei Bobvrosky, who lost his last four starts. Zeke Bratkowski Jersey .Just like old times.Only this time, just one got to enjoy a victory.James return to Miami as an opponent was a success — for the Heat, that is. Wade scored 24 of his 31 points in the first half, Luol Deng had 25 points and dogged James defensively all night, and the Heat beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-91 in a hyped Christmas matchup Thursday. Stan Jones Jersey .com) - Matt Beleskey has helped give the Anaheim Ducks some scoring depth and hell look to stay hot on Wednesday night when his club hosts the struggling Philadelphia Flyers. http://www.custombearsjersey.com/custom ... 1776t.html . The Flames are in the midst of a six-game slide (0-5-1), their longest losing streak since an 0-6-3 skid from Jan. 11-28, 2010. They havent won since Nov. 3 in Chicago and most recently went winless on a three-game homestand.NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Chuck Pagano wanted to take a moment before turning his attention to the playoffs for his Indianapolis Colts to soak in all they have accomplished together.Three seasons and 11 wins in each. Pagano now is only the second NFL coach to win 11 or more games in each of his first three seasons, joining Jim Harbaugh with San Francisco.Andrew Luck threw for 160 yards and two touchdowns in grabbing the Colts single season passing record away from Peyton Manning, and Indianapolis tuned up for the post-season by beating Tennessee 27-10 on Sunday.Extremely proud of what everybody in that room has been able to accomplish, Pagano said. Were not satisfied by no means.The Colts (11-5) had to wait until the final game of the regular season to learn they will host Cincinnati on Sunday in an AFC wild-card game. Wide receiver Reggie Wayne is ready to get to work.Its playoff time, Wayne said. It doesnt matter what your record was. It doesnt matter what you did in the division. It just matters what team is the best team that day. Hopefully this is momentum for the playoffs. Now the real season starts.The Titans (2-14) only have the 2015 draft next after losing their 10th straight and 14th in 15 games. They even missed out on the top pick overall with Tampa Bay losing to New Orleans, so they will pick second. Ken Whisenhunt wasnt ready to assess his first season and what needs to change just yet but plans to stick with his approach.We have had success with it, Whisenhunt said. Its just a lot of things we have to do in the off-season to get it accomplished.Here are a few things to know about the regular season finale between the Colts and Titans:LUCK TOPS MANNING: By the time hes finished, Luck may wind up topping Peyton Manning across the Colts record book. On Sunday, he set the franchise record for yards passing in a single season with 4,761, topping the 4,700 yards Manning had in 2010. Luck needed only 100 yards for the mark, and he had 160 yards passing by halftime. Luck got the recordd on his 80-yard catch-and-run to Reggie Wayne, something Pagano thought was perfect. Abdullah Anderson Jersey. Unbelievable, Pagano said. I didnt realize that was the play that the record was broken. We gave Andrew a game ball and obviously credited him. Great milestone. Great record for Andrew, but very fitting that 87 was on the other end of that.Luck also became the eighth quarterback in NFL history with 40 TD passes and 4,000 yards passing in a single season.MISSED ONE KICK: Adam Vinatieri just missed a chance to celebrate his 42nd birthday by becoming the oldest kicker in NFL history to finish a season perfect on field goals. The Colts kicker finished the season 30 of 31 after one of his three attempts when a 46-yarder drifted just wide left.You never want to miss, Vinatieri said. Every time you step on the field you have an opportunity to help your team win games and put points on the board. Thats the frustrating part that I didnt help my team on that play. You cant make them all, and all good things come to an end I guess at some point. I would sure like to have that one.AFC SOUTH DOMINANCE: The Colts have won nine division titles, but they just swept the division for a second straight year for the first time in franchise history.TWO BAD SNAPS: The Titans came in with 15 players on injured reserve, not counting a couple more starters deactivated with injuries. But they had two bad snaps on drives where they had goal-to-go, something Whisenhunt called inexplicable because he hadnt seen them happen anywhere else. They shook off the first and scored a touchdown. On the second, Whitehurst could only smother the ball while being sacked, and they settled for a field goal.PICKING SECOND: The Titans will pick second overall for the first time since 1984. They also will pick second in the third and fifth rounds and draft first in the second, fourth and sixth rounds.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Teresa M.
